Basketball betting features two of the best teams in the league on Monday night as the Phoenix Suns host the Cleveland Cavaliers in a game that can be seen on NBA-TV. It could be a tough NBA betting spot for the Cavaliers since they played last night at Dallas.
Basketball betting has seen this series between the two teams run in streaks. The Cavaliers have won the last three basketball betting meetings including 107-90 earlier this month in Cleveland while the Suns won the previous four. Last year the Cavaliers won both meetings and it was the first sweep by Cleveland of the season series since 1997-98. That was a surprise since the Suns have won 16 of the last 21 matchups overall. The Suns have won nine of the last 10 at home and are 37-10 all-time at home versus the Cavaliers.
Overall, the Suns have won six of the last ten against Cleveland and they are 6-4 against the NBA betting odds. As mentioned previously, the Cavaliers won both games last year. Cleveland won 107-90 at home and 119-111 in Phoenix in basketball betting. Two years ago in Phoenix it was the Suns winning 103-92. Three of the last four in this basketball betting series have gone under the total.
Cleveland has been a very good team in basketball betting on Mondays. The Cavaliers are 35-15-1 ATS in their last 51 Monday games. They are also solid on the road in NBA betting as they are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 road games. The only concern is that the Cavaliers are 2-5 in their last 7 NBA betting games overall. It also doesn’t help that the Cavaliers are 1-4 in the last 5 basketball betting meetings in Phoenix.
The Suns are 5-1 in basketball betting in their last 6 games overall. Phoenix has been very good at home as they are 20-8-1 ATS in their last 29 home games but they are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. the Central. The favorite in this basketball betting series is 10-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings and the home team is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
Five of the last eight Cleveland basketball betting games against the Western Conference have gone over. Six of the last seven Phoenix games against the Eastern Conference have gone under. Overall, the Suns have gone under in 12 of their last 17. Eight of the last eleven overall have gone over the basketball betting total.
